MoMA PS1 presents the premiere of a new lecture-performance by Mark Leckey, commissioned to coincide with the final day of the exhibition Mark Leckey: Containers and Their Drivers.
MoMA PS1’s acclaimed VW Sunday Sessions program welcomes visitors to experience art live and in real time. Embracing performance, music, dance, conversations, and moving images the program vividly demonstrates how these art forms can push us to engage with our contemporary world in creative, illuminating ways. With an emphasis on artistic practices that blur and break traditional genre boundaries, the program supports and commissions new work, inviting artists, curators, and other cultural instigators to share their latest projects.
MoMA PS1 offers one of the most extensive museum programs dedicated to live art in the world, representing a core component of the institution's mission since its founding.
Mark Leckey: Containers and Their Drivers is made possible by The Andy Warhol Foundation for the Visual Arts and by MoMA’s Wallis Annenberg Fund for Innovation in Contemporary Art through the Annenberg Foundation.
Major support is provided by The International Council of The Museum of Modern Art, The Contemporary Arts Council of The Museum of Modern Art, The Junior Associates of The Museum of Modern Art and the Maurice Marciano Family Foundation.
Additional funding is provided by the MoMA PS1 Annual Exhibition Fund.
